  pcuserguy 21:58 14 Apr 2017

I was checking emails, and I didnt clicked any link,neither I installed any add-on, I suddenly got alert to restart the pc to disable user accounts and it get restart automatically. When it starts,after login screen its displaying the login screen of some company named Booz Allen Hamilton. It is claiming that this is the property of Booz Allen Hamilton,there is a number mentioned too

What should I do?I have windows 10 installed

How long have you had the PC?

What Anti Virus are you running?

Is the PC second hand?

  pcuserguy 10:19 15 Apr 2017

No its a new PC I am using it last 8 months,it was working fine, but yesterday I got this issue. I am using Windows defender and not any other antivirus

8 months old. Check with the Seller. It may just have been preconfigured for Booz Allen. They should be able to deal with that

I have contacted with seller too, they too said it seems to be hacked.

Poewer on then power off after 5 seconds - repeat 3 times - on 4th attempt it should boot to repair option

from there see if you can do a system restore

I have re-install windows,and after reinstalling they were geting update and while updating it restarted automatically and the screen start appearing again

PS: I deleted the partitions and installed

Booze Allen Hamilton is a legitimate company. Remember them from many years ago. Like * Fruit Bat /\0/\ * I suspect that this was configured for Booze Allen.

I think that I should point out that the guys that sold you the machine, as new, are unlikely to admit that it was part of a batch configured for another customer.

@Cacci, if its their machine,then how I was able to use it for almost 9 months? the problem should arise just after I started using it.

@wee eddie, @rdave13 I have bought from a reputable shop which are HP official partners and I bought one more pc along with this,the other one is working absolutely fine. Yes I tried resetting the BIOS,and even updating it,but no luck.

I still cant understand,even if its their property,then how I was able to used it for that long?
